Cucumber, Mint & Coconut milk soup

Cucumber, Mint & Coconut Milk soup

This is a soup I have devised with my vegetarian friends in  mind. It is simple to make , very cheap and nutritous.  Try it and tell me what you think.

This is for 4 people

Ingredients:

1 cucumber

1 vegetable stock dissolved in 700 ml of warm water

4tbsp of coconut milk

2tbsp of vegetable oil or olive oil

1 medium onion, peeled and chopped,

2 cloves garlic  and crushed

50gr mint leaves (reserve couple for garnishing)

salt & pepper

Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthways. Remove seeds and cut into very small pieces. Heat oil in pan saute onions and garlic,  for a couple minutes. Add cucumber, salt and pepper to taste. Gradually add the vegetable stock and simmer for 15mins or until the cucumber is tender. Now add the chopped mint leaves and simmer for another 10mins. Remove soup from heat, stir in coconut milk. Liquidise , return to heat but not boil, check seasoning. Serve immediately garnishing with the remainder of mint leaves.

Viola!!
